Julia and John, a German-Irish couple with two cats and a lovely friendly dog Bruno, made my return to Donegal after 15 years, a memorable experience. An old house with character, beautiful tiled floor, spacious rooms, bright kitchen and a lovely wild garden. Very warm and friendly, with lots of interesting stories to tell (especially the one about sugar :) ) they made me feel at home. Julia took me to a beautiful lake with her car on her way to work , we watched a film together in the living room and they also prepared everything for our last-night Greek food session. They tried their best to make my room warm and cosy and the little details such as the fruit, tea and chocolates they left for me were most welcome. One last detail to add: the bathroom had an electric shower, so the water was HOT! Thanks again for everything Julia and John, I hope I will see you again someday!
We really enjoyed our stay at Julia and John's place! We felt at home as soon as we were greeted at the door.
The room was really nice, specious, clean and quiet (which is exactly what we needed after a couple of nights in a noisy Dublin hostel). The windows face out onto the garden and we were surrounded by trees and it was lovely to have the curtains open in the day, and to see the sun come through the curtains in the morning. Very special. The room also had a bathroom that was accessible only to us, which was nice for some privacy. The breakfast Julia and John provided was really nice, there was more than enough to fill us up for a day of sightseeing in the area!
The hospitality we experienced was really memorable, both Julia and John were really friendly and helpful with suggestions about where to eat / where to drive to / where to shop in the area and we had some good conversations.
A highlight of our stay was definitely their beautiful chocolate Labrador Bruno!!! Such a beautiful character and lovely to be around. Hi Bruno! We miss you!!
We'd recommend staying with Julia and John to anyone and I hope we can stay again one day!
My friend and I had a fabulous time staying with Julia and John!!!! Our accommodations were spacious, the location was very convenient to everything, and hosts were very helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable about the area !!! We would definitely stay here again!!!!
